Headache Relief

There are many types of headaches with varying degrees of pain we experience periodically or continuously. Headaches present themselves as sharp piercing pain, dull and achy pain, or throbbing, intense pain. They can last a few minutes, a few hours, and in some cases, all day long. Some headaches are debilitating enough to keep you home from work, school, or other activities.


What Are Common Causes for Headaches?

Did you know that some foods and certain smells could trigger headaches? In fact, there are a number of things that could be a trigger for you, including an underlying misalignment you might not be aware of.

If your headaches are persistent or chronic, it is recommended you keep a log of what you eat, drink, the activities you do, when the headaches occur, how long they last, and if you take any pain relievers. This information will help narrow the potential causes of your recurring headaches. A simple realignment of your spine might be all it takes to get you headache free.

How Can I Prevent Headaches?

Tips to help reduce the onset of headaches:

  • Get a good night’s rest
  • Eat healthy and on a regular schedule
  • Stress relievers—exercising, yoga, and meditation can help
  • Drink plenty of water—you could be suffering from dehydration
  • Exclude foods with toxic chemicals—aspartame, phenylalanine, sucralose, and monosodium glutamate (MSG)


Everyone suffers from headaches occasionally, but if you’re finding that your headaches are preventing you from enjoying your normal life activities, you may be suffering from migraine headaches.

What Are Migraines?

Migraines are more than just serious headaches. Migraines can be debilitating in the severity of the pain, causing people to miss out on daily life. Migraines are unpredictable, bring an intense throbbing pain, and may affect eyesight and equilibrium.

Medical doctors will tell patients that migraines have no known cause. However, as many as 75 percent of patients have found that their migraines are connected with neck pain. Because of the connection between neck pain and resulting migraine headaches, a visit the chiropractor can help bring relief.

How Can Chiropractic Care Help?

Realigning the spine and neck can help reduce the frequency of migraines, and for some patients, a complete cure for the condition. When the neck and spine are in proper alignment, the entire nervous system functions as it was designed to, and the result is fewer headaches.

Migraines can often be connected to tension in the neck and shoulders, so sometimes your chiropractor will recommend mechanical traction to help reduce this tension in combination with chiropractic adjustment, which can allow you to return to your normal quality of life.
